Jon heyman says in this report that the 2 sides are close
Skins, Flyers, Phils and 76ers
Fake accounts don't count. It's pretty hard to be fooled by a fake account once you realize that people do that.

Apparently Anthony Gargano did actually report this yesterday. CBS Philly posted an article about it here: http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/201...year-contract/ which they wouldn't have done had been a completely erroneous report.
That being said Ant isn't exactly the most reputable source in the world.

I totally see the Lee-Young angle playing a part here. I'd give him this deal without thinking, with a vesting 4th year at the same AAV as a sweetener. Then I'd go out and do the Brown-for-Soriano deal and watch happily as OFFENSE returns to Philly.
But I'm an old guy; I'd gladly trade another 2-3 years of contention at the expense of delaying another rebuilding project.
And remember, we're in NYY-BOS territory now where a rebuild won't take as long as before CBP and the new cable deal.

ALL YOUR ACE ARE BELONG TO US.
I would love Hamilton in Philly, but RAJ does not have a track record for spending money on offense. I see the Phils missing on Hamilton and settling for Scott Hariston to platoon with Brown which is not enough to win the NL EAST
3years wont get it done say hello to Soriano
Its on mlbtr now...
I just figured its logical to mention that since so many people Sony believe something unless it hits twitter...

Edit: at first i thought it was an AL lineup, ie i thought u had 4 OFs or an added DH but its legit. add that lineup to hammels doc lee and you guys are favorites for WS barring underproformance/injury.

Harry, I grew up with the phillies and learned the game by your voice. You will always be missed but never forgotten. Though you are no longer with us, you'll never be "outta here" in our hearts!
I will take him for 4 years with an option for a 5th and a buyout....Most of you guys have pushed me to the point where I say to hell with spending lets just win lol
